Conference paper


Computer assisted handling of chemical structures — the international language of chemistry — has become very comfortably within the last 30 years. Problems arise by leaving the field of classic valence bond type structures and incorporating metal complexes or cluster compounds for instance. This report shows the concept for documentation of Lewis adduct compounds, transition metal complexes with π bonds including d- or f-orbitals and cluster compounds within the factual database “B-Base”. Furthermore it describes the evaluation of factual data for visualisation via graphical comparison. A new feature of ChemBase software, now applicated to “B-Base”, enables the linkage of substructure and graphs of shift ranges.
